Parent Message 2-2-2020
Good evening Clippers. This is Principal Savage with your weekly message.
If the weather didn’t already give you a hint, Punxsutawney Phil has declared that spring will come early. With that in mind spring sports will start on Feb 29th so if you haven’t gotten your physical this year make sure you get that taken care of soon. See the attachments in the email.
Students should have brought home their report cards on Thursday. If you haven’t seen your child’s report card, please review it with them. If your child received E’s for their 2nd term because of attendance those grades can be adjusted through attendance recovery. Students have 30 days to get their attendance adjusted. The form they need to complete for the attendance recovery is attached.
If your students needs access to the internet for homework, we have a new item in our Media Center call the Kajeet Smart Spot. Check out the flyer attached or have your student visit the media center for more information.

As always there are a lot of great events happening each week so be sure to check out the bulletin and Facebook.
Based on recent events it is clear that school safety is a high priority in our community. If you know your student struggles to attend class or they have a tendency to disrupt school, please discuss with them the possible consequences that could result from those behaviors. As a school our goal is to educate students so that they can graduate and become productive members of our Salisbury community. It is always to our disappointment when students choose to come to school and disrupt throughout the day. However, those who disrupt will be addressed as we work to promote the very best here at JMB through our quality academics and a positive school culture.
Helping students to grow and learn is a team effort and I thank you for your support and look forward to seeing what we can achieve together.
Thank you and have a great evening.
